We've had ducks for a little while now, they are delightful creatures with their big bottoms and rhythmic waddle. Great pleasure has been taken in feeding them our kitchen scraps, rolled oats and stale bread and they have rewarded us with fresh eggs most days. That is until the eggs stopped coming and the ducks went walk about.
For a few days they were M.I.A, no eggs and infrequent waddle bottom sightings. After discussing their whereabouts with our neighbour she had a quick look around her property only to find one lady duck underneath her back steps... sitting on 8 eggs. You know what that means- Ducklings for Christmas.
Thats if the python lingering around doesn't get to them first. I really hope not, ducklings would be SO magical. Any advice on how to keep the snakes away from the eggs would be appreciated.
